WARD, AR - A Lonoke County woman has been arrested for manslaughter after Deputies responded to 55 Bonnie Blue Lane on a call of an unresponsive 3-month-old infant male on March 13.

When Deputies arrived on the scene they located the child and it was determined he was deceased.

After an investigation by the Lonoke County Sheriff's Department, Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children, and the Department of Children and Family services, it was determined the child died from being severely malnourished.

According to police, a warrant was issued for the infant's mother Lindsey Colbert, 28, of Ward.

Colbert was arrested on May 27 and is currently being held at the Lonoke County Sheriff's Detention without bond until her first appearance in court.
